Documentation:DIY Screencast/What is Screencasting
As in this nice example from the UBC Library, a screencast is a video recording of the activity on your computer screen accompanied by audio narration and often include special effects such as panning, scribing, drawing, callouts or arrows to emphasize particular aspects of your visuals that you want to draw attention to. Screencasts are useful for:
- demonstrating how to use a web application or piece of software.
- illustrating a particular concept via a whiteboard application.
